This was a day of adventure, mishap that became a blessing. Our planned route is shown below. Destination, Cornwall, Ontario Canada. It was to be a long day with a planned 319 miles. Starting out going thru some mountains in Maine, duck back into Quebec for a while heading west. Then finally into Ontario.
Route 201, we found out is the Old Canada Road Scenic Byway. One website described it the way:
“With the road traveling along the Kennebec River, Wyman Lake and on through The Forks area, where the Dead and Kennebec Rivers converge, the traveler can experience endless scenic views of amazing waterways and spectacular mountain vistas.”
From Rt. 201 we crossed the border back into Canada and headed to Quebec City.
Here is a little about Old Quebec City from Wikipedia:
Old Québec is a historic neighbourhood of Quebec City, the capital of the province of Quebec in Canada. Comprising the Upper Town and Lower Town, the area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site… Most of the buildings date back to the 19th century with the construction of some dating as far back as the 17th and 18th centuries.
Here is a photo (not mine) of the old city.
This is was a beautiful, European looking city, absolutely should be on your list to visit someday. Since our day was extended due to the routing mistake, we allowed ourselves only 2 hours to visit Old Quebec City. Below our some of our photos, enjoy!
